About this Cook
I'm 23, living in Vermont with my fiance. I'm the manager of a gourmet chocolate store, and in the past few years I've been learning more and more and food and cooking. When I'm not cooking I like to make jewelry and hope to have my own bead store some day. My fiance and I love anything outdoors including, hiking, fishing, hunting, snowshoeing, kayaking, etc.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying out different techniques and experimenting with flavors. My father went to school for culinary arts and was a chef for a while, but my mom has always been a very picky eater and allowed me to be, too, as a child. I've lately learned to love pretty much every kind of food, so I love trying out new things and sharing ideas with my dad.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Often on Sundays my dad would slow cook pasta sauce or baked beans and I can remember enjoying the smell all day long. On nights when my dad worked late, my mom would prepare what she called "this and that" dinners for my sister and I. These would usually consist of little finger sandwiches, cut up fruits, mini salads, mac and cheese, and other strange little snack type things all served on a cafeteria style tray. Those were my favorite meals!
My cooking triumphs
Just learning how to cook flavorful and healthy meals is quite a triumph for me. My fiance was raised in a family of foodies, so when he gobbles down my creations and goes back for more, I know I've done something right.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making a pea soup recently because I remember my mom having it a lot when I was a child. It turned out pretty nasty, though.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
This was my first ever attempt at making a pie and it turned out wonderful! It was easy to make and delicious. I did add a little cinnamon and nutmeg to suit my tastes.

White Bean Chicken Chili
This was really good and flavorful. I used salsa verde like other reviewers suggested and it turned out great. My fiance is a hardcore red beef chili fan, but he loved this!
